What do I need to travel to India from UK?

If you're thinking of visiting India this summer, here's everything you need to know about admission procedures, laws while you're there, and travel insurance.

Here are the things you need to travel to India from the UK:

  • A valid passport: Applicants must have a valid UK passport with at least six months of validity from the date of entry into India.
  • Indian tourist visa: You will need a visa to travel to India unless you are a citizen of one of the countries that are exempt from visa requirements. You can apply for a visa online through the Indian Immigration Services website instead of applying online at the embassy
  • Travel insurance: It is recommended that you obtain travel insurance before traveling to India. This will protect you in the event of a medical emergency or other unanticipated incident.

In addition to these requirements, you may be required to provide documentation of future travel, lodging, and financial resources.

Entry criteria to India may change, so always check the official website of Indian Immigration Services for the most up-to-date information before traveling.
